For the Fall edition of the Colors subscription series, Field Notes is definitely keeping it under wraps, figuratively and literally. This collection is called “Unexposed” and sounds like it will feature a random assortment of books from a range of six possible covers.
What do you think it will be? Are you annoyed or intrigued?

I think it kwill be kind of fun. Christmas/birthday everytime you crack a package open
intrigued! But I’m hoping to avoid “spoilers” before my subscription arrives. THAT’LL be tricky!
I promise to wait a week before posting too much about the subscription until current subscribers have received their edition but not so late that new subscribers can’t hop on to this edition.
Honestly a bit frustrated. I much prefer the editions with thicker paper, so that I can use a fountain pen with it, and so only buy when that’s the case. Not knowing anything about even the paper means I’m likely not going to purchase.
The info on the Unexposed page says its the “reticle graph” (“sort of a hybrid of our popular dot-grid and graph papers”) previously used in the Night Sky edition on “our usual beloved Finch Opaque text paper.” Not the best fountain pen paper but a good standard.
Interesting idea but it getting into trading card territory.
I wonder just how random a pack is ?
When they say 20 combinations that should exclude 2 or 3 of the same cover in the pack. Although I think there would be around 120 combinations in that case.
Maybe it is just random pack selection then ?
maybe not 120 different covers on reflection
I’m thrilled. But I’m afraid I’m going to succumb to the urge to buy a couple dozen packs! I’m too much of a collector for this kind of excitement.
Gah, all my dirty mind can do is imagine them cursing repeatedly and enthusiastically.
Sounds like a cop out because they have run out of new ideas. Could be dangerous territory with new look-alike brands hitting the market every month or so, Shame.
Funny, the one thing they should’ve bleeped out, they didn’t. I purchased some Field Notes once and really like the quality, but it’s their choice of language in some of their online content and in their notebook covers that causes me to back out of ordering again, even though I’d really like to. Course, guess I could mark out the inappropriate stuff with a Sharpie like I did in the batch I did order.
We’re excited for a bit more mystery in our lives!
